I am so excited to announce that my musical I wrote with my longtime collaborator Anya Saffir, The Velveteen Rabbit is officially rehearsals at Atlantic Theater Company.
I am extremely proud of this show - it is almost all music (it's practically an opera!) and performed almost exclusively Acapella! We have an incredible cast to bring this story to life - it should be a spectacle not to be missed!
Details below! Links to tickets here.

“What is Real?” asked the Velveteen Rabbit to the Skin Horse.
“Real isn’t how you are made. It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.”
…So begins the story of a very shy toy Rabbit made of velveteen and sawdust who longs to be loved. Newly adapted from Margery Williams Bianco’s beloved children’s tale of nursery magic and the secret life of toys, The Velveteen Rabbit takes us on the Rabbit’s musical journey from loneliness to friendship, from loss to Love, from innocence to wisdom, and finally…to becoming Real.
Best suited for ages 3 to 9, while kids and adults of all ages are welcome!
